Summary
A former director of 9to5, Bravo speaks nationwide and teaches women's studies at U. of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. In this text, she furthers her support of feminism as a system of beliefs, laws, and practices that fully values women and the work associated with them, to the benefit of both genders. The text covers the main issues for women in the workplace: pay equity, work-family issues, women's participation in certain occupations, sexual harassment, the right to organize, part-time and temporary jobs, welfare reform, and women's work outside of work. Each chapter examines the myths around the issue, clarifies the problem, proposes detailed solutions, and dismantles the propaganda against those solutions by showing how the 9to5 movement and other grassroots organizations have taken on the "Big Boys"--the powerful people who benefit from gender discrimination --in the past.
